digitalmars.D - Request: Type theory/CS expert pre-review of bioinformatics paper

reply James Blachly <james.blachly gmail.com> writes:
Dear all:

We are writing a short bioinformatics manuscript describing a 
novel feature of our Dlang bioinformatics library [0] which 
leverages the type system in (AFAICT) a novel way to statically 
guarantee correctness within our problem domain.

However, we are not type theorists or even computer scientists 
[1], and the manuscript could benefit greatly from a pre-review 
by an expert in the field for correctness of nomenclature and 
other suggestions. We would be delighted to acknowledge you in 
the paper (or, if major rewrite is suggested and undertaken, 
potentially to include you as a co-author).

Please shoot me at note at my gmail address if you can help. We 
will try to take an absolute minimum of your time. Thank you in 
advance!

I've done a similar thing for the domain of compute/GPUs in dcompute, and though I'm no type theory expert, I have engineering, compiler and biology backgrounds. I can't find that gmail address though.

Thanks, this is not readily available from the forum interface. I swear it used to be.

For normal forum users there is no such link. Most likely you have some kind of elevated privileges that grant you access to it.

You sure about that?

Positive. :) https://i.imgur.com/remKwud.png In fact, I'll do you one better. Here's the code in DFeed that generates the "source" link: https://github.com/CyberShadow/DFeed/blob/42627ca78eb0ec448d86336f5762127b297d77f3/src/dfeed/web/web/part/post.d#L84-L87 And here's the Level enum it refers to: https://github.com/CyberShadow/DFeed/blob/8e4a9cea214d511bffa3aa485c9cb2e208a6e590/src/dfeed/web/user.d#L68-L76

FWIW, only the link is hidden - anyone can change /post/ to /source/ to see the raw message. The link is hidden by default to prevent mindless web robots from scraping email addresses.

If you're logged in you can see it, if you log out you can't (for me, anyway)

I definitely also do not see any "source" link; I even created a new account and logged in to see if it appeared then.
